‘We don’t tip terrorist’ note writer banned from Texas restaurant

‘We don’t tip terrorist’ note writer banned from Texas restaurant
A customer left a racist note on their check in a Texas steakhouse, unleashing an outpouring of fury and support for the waiter who was bizarrely branded a terrorist.

Khalil Cavil was working at the Saltgrass Steak House in Odessa when he received the note written on the check for one of his tables. “We don’t tip terrorist,” it said, with a circle drawn around the word “Khalil,” on the $108 check.  

“At the moment I didn’t know what to think nor what to say, I was sick to my stomach.” Cavil wrote on Facebook. “I share this because I want people to understand that this racism, and this hatred still exists.”

Cavil said he was named after one of his father’s best friends, who served in the military with him. He has no Middle Eastern background and is not a Muslim. In fact, Cavil is a Christian who will study theology at Dallas Baptist next year, the Odessa American reports.

“We stand by and support our employee. Racism of any form is unacceptable and we have banned this customer from returning to our establishment.” Terry Turney, COO of Saltgrass said in a statement.
